The Global Mobile Awards show has agreed with Android magazine and made the LG G3 its Smartphone of the Year, but it had to share its title with the iPhone 6.

LG’s flagship device wowed the judges thanks to its ‘affordable excellence’ and ‘edge-to-edge screen’, resulting in an impressive joint first, considering the fact it was up against a number of phones that had been released long after it.

The Motorola Moto E took the award for best budget phone and the company came out on top in the wearable tech section for the Moto 360. The Microsoft Surface Pro 3 was given the title of Best Mobile Tablet, thanks to its ‘carefully engineered design’.

In the apps categories there were wins for Asphalt 8: Airborne (Best Mobile Game App), Game on (Most Innovative Mobile App) and IFTTT earned the accolade of the best overall app.

The rest of the winners can be found here.
